A surgically-implanted prosthesis is a piece of equipment that is implanted into the body during a hospital procedure, such as artificial hip, a pacemaker, a cardiac stent, screws and plates. Most Government-approved surgicallyimplanted prostheses are covered by your hospital cover, however, some will require a patient contribution to be paid if the supplier charges above the listed benefit. If a gap amount applies to your prosthesis, your surgeon/hospital will arrange for you to complete an Informed financial consent form.
